Tube Tech International has announced a strategic alliance with engineering service provider Serba Dinamik. The partnership will see the two companies deliver a portfolio of world-class fouling solutions to refineries across Indonesia and Malaysia.
Tube Tech launched its next-generation robotic cleaning system in January 2020 following a multi-million-dollar research and development project.
As a company which delivers maintenance solutions to improve process efficiency, reduce maintenance costs and energy consumption, and extend equipment life, Serba Dinamik was a sought-after partner in the region, as Tube Tech’s managing director Jon Camp explains: “We have seen exceptional interest in our cleaning technologies across Southeast Asia […] It is a region where there is clear demand from operators to invest in solutions that will benefit their stakeholders and the environment. Serba Dinamik has an unrivalled reputation for delivering expertise in operation and maintenance solutions, and we are delighted to be working in partnership with them.
“This strategic alliance will not just bring enhanced technologies to the region but enable us to pass logistical savings and rapid response to the vast and ever-increasing refining market in Southeast Asia.”
The region is bucking the global trend, with Indonesia accelerating its processing capacity at a rapid pace in a bid to cut its reliance on fuel imports. On 6 July 2020, Bloomberg reported that one Indonesian oil refiner is investing US$48 billion, aiming to almost double processing capacity to 1.8 million bpd over the next seven years.
Dato’ Dr. Karim Abdullah, the Group Chief Executive Officer for Serba Dinamik said: “We are very optimistic that this collaboration will bring significant benefits for all in the value chain. Serba Dinamik is always looking for partners with new technology and innovations to sustain our business. This is an excellent opportunity to expand our scopes and marketability in the region”.
